Art Description

Orchids are notoriously difficult to grow, and represent wealth and status. In Bhutan, fittingly, rare and beautiful orchids grow in the forests, away from human eyes and our associations and price tags.

Monjit Nepal

Born 1992, from Tsirang

I have always enjoyed creative work. I became interested in painting after a program on television about art. I tried to replicate the colours and the flow of the paints but without guidance, I was like a ‘ship in the ocean without a rudder’. I was fortunate to come across artists who tutored and guided me at VAST Bhutan.

In college, I was introduced to ‘hay art’ at a friend’s place. I was fascinated and wanted to learn more about it. As I started doing this form of art, the beginning was rocky but with practice I became better. I am grateful to have people give me their honest feedback.

Now I am very confident and enjoy my creative process.
